Primary Instructor:

This course is an introduction to the history and culture of Ancient Greece. We will laugh with the ancient comedians and think with the ancient philosophers. We will also confront the contradictions of this complex society: Why did the freedom-loving Greeks condone slavery? Why were women denied a role in politics, but were featured prominently in public performances of tragedy? Finally, we will explore the complex legacy of the Greeks to the modern world, in part through the study of the representation of ancient Greece in film.

A major goal of the course is to help students develop college-level writing skills. Short essays (two pages) written in response to reading assignments are required each week. In addition, there will be two longer essays (5 pages each) and two one-hour exams.

Active participation is required.
